Investing in Scholarships for Simpcw Youth

Emily Matthew award recipient of Simpcw First Nations Scholarship to attend the University of British Columbia, Bachelor of Science Program. 

I am incredibly proud to say that I have completed my first month at the University of British Columbia. It has been a whirlwind of emotions moving from Kamloops to a bigger city and starting a new chapter in my life.   Although I miss home, I am finding Kelowna to be very comforting. Meeting new friends and school I find myself always busy. My personal goals are to get through this first year as I start getting used to the change in learning, study habits, and the freedom. 

My career goals are to first complete my degree in Science with a major in psychology as I had sparked an interest in biopsychology since I was in grade 10. With that I plan on either focusing in research studies or becoming a physician. Thank you for this opportunity and to my friends and family.
